Steak. I got a killer deal on 10 small steaks at Wally World today and I froze all but one. I decided they'd be great for nights when DD is working and I'm alone. Nothing with it; I've been snacking on hummus and crackers for the last hour.

We just finished off some leftover chile. It's a bit cold here, so it went well.

Sure, here's the recipe from my site:

1 pound fresh sausage ( I prefer Tennessee Pride or Rudy's Farm )
3 tablespoons shortening (or bacon drippings)
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
3 cups milk
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper

Here's what you need to do:



In a large heavy skillet (preferably cast iron), brown the sausage breaking it up with a spatula over medium high heat. Do not drain.

Add the shortening, flour, salt and pepper.

Cook stirring constantly until flour begins to brown.

Slowly add milk while continuing to stir.

Bring to a boil, reduce heat to a simmer and cook for one minute stirring occasionally. As the gravy cools it will thicken so if you want thinner gravy, add a little more milk

Cut the biscuits in half and pour the gravy over the biscuits.

Lemon pepper trout, side of whole wheat couscous with sauteed red bell peppers, mushrooms, and onions. Steamed broccoli on the side. Chocolate cupcakes for dessert.
